"marlene dietrich" Discussed on Asian America: The Ken Fong Podcast

"On stage productions, it's incredible incredible story. So with this success in Europe, she came back to America. I think it was probably 1930 or so. And Paramount Pictures hired her and to first picture she gets, the first gig she gets is in daughter of the dragon, playing the daughter of fu Manchu. And of course, is back to that old. Wow. Podcasting. He plays this devious. It's fermented his daughter, right? She's totally evil. She took the robot, what's interesting about that film is she plays opposite so see how color. And so see how it comes to Japan born silent film star. Oh yeah. In American style fields, he was one of the biggest, if not for a while, the biggest box office draw Romeo actors in American silent films. That's amazing. So for to see how this I believe I'm pretty sure that this was his first sound film. For anime Wong, it was her first English American sound film. She did English southeast and Britain. But this is the first American sound film. Well, both of them. And what's fascinating is that if you watch it, and we'll talk about how you can watch this little later. Yeah. If you watch this film, they're speaking without overblown, crazy accents. Now, so see how car was Japan born, so he does have a Japanese accent. But their English is on tact. It's not broken English. It's not pigeonholing. The standard. You know, with correct grammar as we know it in America. Which is very different from what we see in afterwards where we know that by and large in the American productions, you hear whenever you see a Chinese or Asian character on screen, they're directed to have heavy accents. And I talked to my actor friends here in town in LA. And he said, yeah, you know, they go to auditions and directors say, well, can you talk like, you know? And they don't want to say it. And the act is not what they want. You want me to talk like a chinaman or what? You know? And because I'm not sure where that trend started in Hollywood, but it grew so strong that we know that oftentimes when we see Asian or Chinese characters on screen, they're going to have this heavy, thick accent. But not daughter to dragon. That's amazing. Which I find very fascinating. Yeah. Okay, now the dialog is on the ball this and we slept on the happy stuff. But the grammar is intact. It's not and it accents aren't there. Let me try to jump through big stages. So from there, I wonder if we're a big hit was Shanghai express. I think one of her more selling roles on screen. She plays a prostitute opposite Marlene Dietrich, but in the end, I'm not going to give it away in case you haven't seen it yet, but it's a wonderful role for Anna May Wong. And in this role change you're bringing back these belong is in their view as well. Now from there, we're talking about the mid 30s. There was a book called the good earth. For less but written by MGM bought the rights to it and it was going to be this big deal. For those who don't know, it's about Chinese peasants. In China and rural China. And anime Wong was the Chinese American actress of her time. And you know, are going to be today. But definitely of her time. And she lobbied to play the lead in that role. As far as I know, and I haven't found records of it, she was never given an audition for that role. I'm not sure if she was even seriously considered for. That's criminal. And that's what she thought. But they did give her an audition for the concubine row notice. Of course, I don't think they even offered to her, but she thought, and this is we see this in her writings to some college friends. And I'm prayer for us and she goes, you know, yeah, I auditioned for it. I'm not sure I'm a very wanted, you know, hell, if I'm gonna, if I'm not gonna get the main character role, hell if I'm gonna take this secondary role who is an evil character, you know? In this story, she's a bad character. She's one of the villains. And she goes, and in the end, she just, I don't think that even offered it to her, but she publicly or made it known that she wasn't even gonna take it. Tell us who they did cast for the protagonist's role. Austria. Austria. If you get my book Hollywood Chinese, I actually have a full page spread because it was so egregious. I have a double spread, one side is ten lilo, and one sized anime Wong. Just so that you can visually see this is who they got instead of anime Wong. You know, it's just a crime. But I think this is part of why this quarter or so important for her is that she's a fighter. You know, she was trying to control her career in she was offered a multi picture deal at paramount, which gave her more control over the kind of roles that she would get. And here we have about three or four films where we start with daughter of Shanghai, where she plays a Chinese American and opposite fill on a Korean American actor who plays a Chinese American, and they're the lead roles. And they have a romance. Wow. And they're good. And they're the good guys. Wow. They saw the mystery. And this led eventually to a film called king of Chinatown, where she plays a Chinese American doctor inspired by the real Chinese American doctor in the 30s, doctor Margaret Chung, who was a very well regarded well respected citizen of America. It is particularly as China where she practiced. And she's plays against again, offset felon, who plays the Chinese American lawyer, and they save the day. And she's an upright citizen Doctor Who's trying to raise money with a war relief in China, the war against Japan. And they have romance in this film. And they get married at the end. So, you know, she took control of her career and got the scoop of films made, and in the 40s, she transferred or she really wanted to push her interest in helping China against the Japanese in the war war two. And made two films bounce off a Burma. What are those? And lady from chungking, where she plays a Chinese gorilla. And lady from chungking, she plays a gorilla. She works with James B long again. As a core gorillas, sabotaging the Japanese attacks in China. The independent films not high budget, but really underscores her commitment. To her politics. And her last film in the 40s was impact, not a great film, a small film, she plays a maid, she's not the main character, plays opposite again, fill on. Feel I'm actually a small role. So it's not playing opposite. But he's in the cast. But in the 50s, he excels in TV. It's crazy. He's one of the first, if not the first woman or Asian American. Definitely be first Asian American to have a TV series on the DuPont network.

"Than an old fan of hers because they're almost out of sight by the time I cad got rolling and that's the way it was across market street and all the way out there to the Marina. Her cab was pulled up in front of an apartment Jefferson street and she just got now when we slid in behind them. Hi, you want to go up together? But you said you were. I'm sorry, honey. I know it was a dirty trick, but now that's no way to be. Shut up. The gold card holder by the doorbell is to the tenants as WR Smith, mister Smith was evidently not home. The lady manager in the apartment next to his was an app of a usual license shelling and more than the usual sweet sauce, she came up with a key. Little wasn't wealthy, but he wasn't hungry either. Place had the well fixed man about Tom look right down to the last crystal martini glass in the portable bar in the living room. Next to it was a mahogany desk in which were sundry checkbooks and deposit slips indicating diddle I found a prosperous widow or I've been doing rather well at canasta. I thought Sean four in the next room sent to it after ten I wondered why when did it take a look? Maybe I was spiking like the girls said there was a tape recorder against one wall at the same time I've seen in your office Tracy with a microphone and a roll of tape and an accused of holding the microphone with one hand was Jimmy biddle and the other hand, a 38. He wasn't hurt as I'd told her. He was dead. You are listening to the weekly adventure of radio's most famous detective, Sam spade. This Sunday, there's another outstanding production by theater guild on the air. It's a one hour adaptation of the thrilling tale of intrigue and post war Vienna the third man. Joseph cotton and senior household star in this theater guild on the air broadcast, and Sunday over most of these NBC stations also means the big show. An hour and a half of the finest in comedy music and drama to Lula will be your hostess and just listen to a few of the stars. Red Allen Marlene Dietrich, Danny Thomas and Fran Warren. There will be many more too, so tune in this Sunday and every Sunday. For the big show. And now back to the middle riddle caber tonight's adventure with Sam's fade. In accordance with chapter 5 of the pirate detective's manual entitled how to keep your license, I called homicide and gave him the facts and figures, then went back to the study. Jimmy biddle was surrounded by tops like part one of a photo crying puzzle. I carefully reached over his shoulder and pressed the button on the tape recorder. My name is Jimmy peddle. The DA will remember me, we saw a lot of each other during the week after Carol Stevens hit the deck and our apartment three years ago. I just about this time of night. I fooled him then. I could probably go on fully, but I'm tired of it. I'm tired of living this way. So here it is. I knew Carol Stevens well. I was crazy about it. And I was jealous, too. That's why I killed her. I felt like I could go on and on playing hide and go seek for the rest of my life, but sooner or later this kind of thing can still have to pack around it. You gotta get rid of it. One way or another. Here he is end of reports. I routed the landlady again, and we went over the room together and helpful tight landlady. She contributed a thousand odd bits of gossip about Jimmy biddle, only one of which struck me as interesting. She'd come in this morning, she said to clean his apartment, and among other things, had wound and set the 8 day clock on the mantle, the same clock, which was now exactly four hours fast. Looking closer at the paper quarter, I saw a small label painted above one of the knobs reading more gas and Reed recording technicians. Next scene, the manufacturing section of Stanford street, a 5 story building all dark at this hour, except for light in the office on the second floor back, which happily turned out to be D one. I guess. Ray. Anybody. Hello. What do you want? Well, the pastry cook. I am sorry, we're close, you see, office hours, 9 to 5 minutes. Now, wait a minute, just a minute, pastry cooking. I'm not a pastry cook, so my name is mothers. I am one of the proprietors here. Just a moment so I'm sorry. It was getting cold out in the hall. I was a younger child. And I don't care who you are. I know all about it. I know it wasn't a practical joke. What wasn't a practical joke? That tape. You can march right back to the man you're working for and tell him he can't buy me off. Is that clear? Not very. There's no use denying it. I saw you in his office this afternoon when he threatened me. Where are you? I called out on a fire estate and planned to see my buddy in the pinstripe suit at the bottom of the alley, please be with blind of one end, so Luke took off her the street. I caught him in one leg. He stumbled fell, smacked his head against a brick wall of the alley and took the count. I was whisking him when a power cop who led the shots no doubt. I convinced him I wasn't rolling a drunk and let him run back upstairs. I better get you to a hospital. Who are you, van Spain? I don't work for no guard right now I'm trying to hang a murder rack on him. Told me this wasn't correct because joke. What? Hey. Jimmy, this is Jimmy red of the machine from you and made a take himself, right? No God. What about your guy? To beat me injury. Between wouldn't give it to him. Get what? He tried to point to the desk if he passed out and so did this already bubbling still. We had a crucial typewriter while waiting for the ambulance I tasted and found nothing and start a piece of paper into it and began its heist four foot round patches that jumped over four lazy dogs when a sound changed. I looked closer and then tackled a messy job I always lead to my secretary. I hate to play with typewriter ribbons, but this wasn't a typewriter ribbon, since said ribbon had come to an end when I was taken away at a piece of sound tape. Come on, all the way. Look, come on, my feet are even more tired than they were an hour ago. Okay, you first. All right now. I'm sorry. I thought you were lying when you said, Jeannie. Look, let's not go into that now. He was blackmailing nor God, right? I don't even know who nor guy did. You know Jenny was checking someone down, didn't she? Never knew where he got his money. I just knew it was dirty money. We'd laugh and say, he was living hard, but that's a little. He never mentioned nor guy? No, you can tell he was gonna make $50,000 on a radio program. Did he say how? I thought he was kidding, and he showed up at that table. And he wasn't kidding. Then what? You wanted to be alone in the city. It was going to make an audition instead of the response. That's where he made the mistake. He sent it to the wrong sponsor. They figured they had no drives for the biggest touch of all, but hearing it might make him dig deeper. So he recorded his statement, sent it to nor guard for a sample, but there was something he didn't think of. What do you mean? He should have studied up on his tape recorders, baby. But a pair of scissors and a good technician, Jimmy's eyewitness account turned into a first class concession.

"Into this under the waterfall under the giant spittle waterfall to go into this exhibit. And in this exhibit is some of the most extraordinary design crystal things. Done by different artists, different people. They're a series of rooms, themed rooms you go from one to the other. But also in there are the artifacts that they provided crystal for. Michael Jackson's glove. Is in there. The dress that Marilyn Monroe won to sing happy birthday mister president is in there. There are costumes they did for Cher with sparkling crystals. There's Marlene Dietrich in there. There are modern people. There's a whole collection of what they call Hollywood. All the things they designed for Hollywood and the rocket man costume for Elton John. So wander through there and ultimately, there's a gift shop at the end, but also there's a park with a maze and restaurants and so it's like the Knott's Berry Farm of crystals. But it's all very popular. The parking lot is very large, so it must get a lot of visitors. It is not too far from Innsbruck. An Innsbruck is probably the farthest west of sissy site. It was the western palace of that family. It has one of the most extraordinary churches called the Hoff Kirk, the palace church, but in it is a tomb for one of the emperor's Frederick or Ferdinand. He's not in it. There's a massive tomb, which is extraordinary. It's sort of by metal gate and that has all the gold cherubs and all the things that they put on those things. But they moved his body. So he's not actually there. But to be buried there, he wanted to be surrounded by his legendary idols. So there is a collection of statues in bronze of the great kings and dukes and knights of the Middle Ages, because this is back in the 1400s, 1500s. Okay. There's even King Arthur in there. So all the legendary nightly kings and queens standing before this great empty tomb. But it's quite extraordinary. But next door is the Hoff Kirk, so it's connected to the Hoff is the palace.

"I'm sure as it is and they make my legs look even shorter. And while I'd like to show how or why it started to become a simple fourth LGBTQ+ community, don't get me wrong, if you want to cover your jeans and go for it, all I'm saying is that I don't understand. I don't understand why and it doesn't look good on me personally. Okay. It sounds like that person recorded that on a motorway. So I didn't quite, I think the gist of it was, she said, I can't get on board with cuff jeans, which apparently are associated with the LGBTQ community. Yes. So that means like turn ups on jeans. Which I think is to do with Butch culture. Rolled up, but I wouldn't say half. But you just last week were asking for the boot cup to come back. I was, I was. So maybe the turn up is going. But I think it's to do with Butch culture. And I think it's quite funny because there's so much fashion stuff with queer culture that has history and you arrive in it and you're supposed to know what it means. And there's a lot of like when you first go to a gay club, let's say you went to XXL. I'm talking as a gay man here. A lot of people in like workwear and like hive is vests and you're like, what's going on here then? Yeah, there's a lot of that. And there's quite a lot of queer history of clothes that you kind of, I suppose, it's Butch isn't it, and then it's also village people. Since I've come out was bisexual and also not just come out, but explored my bisexual side, because I didn't know I thought I was bisexual, but I really needed to check. And I know that sounds like, I know it sounds because people don't know how did you know you were straight? And it's like, well, because the world told me I was. So it was something I needed to explore and check. One of the things I'm talking about my new stand up show is a lot of it is about coming out and my first sexual experience with a woman. And I have, I think, gone through a little bit of more of an androgynous phase. But I like, I know I'm quite femme tonight, and I my default is femme, but again, how much of that is what I saw modeled as a child. I don't know. Obviously, if I'd been dropped onto a desert island, I wouldn't have I wouldn't dress like this because I wouldn't know these things. This wouldn't be iconography that identified with. But my kind of androgyny is like a Marlene Dietrich dinner jacket. Do you know what I mean? I like to wear like black tie or something like that. But it is quite glam fair androgyny if you see what I mean. I don't really just want to be in a jumper and jeans. Doesn't feel someone else. Are you agreeing with me for seriously? Because this is Lulu, who I talked to in the morning tonight's guest. She's going to join in. Lulu was nearly you and Ellie dropped for Lulu. I'm so sorry, Chris, but she was being riveting at any point. You just push a buzzer and we'll swap. Oh, if I push that buzzer there, you'll fall through the stage just so you know, I did think this is a bit like an episode of one O one one O one. It's so like that. So yeah, I talked to Louis, I'm not a gene to the show. I don't look good in casual clothes, and I don't feel good in casual clothes. But also, isn't that because it's a you've arrived at more of your bisexual side a bit later in life, let's say. How dare you? Apply that I'm not 22. But you know, it's like, therefore, is there some kind of onus on like, oh, I need to bisexual my look. Whereas actually you are a creation of an amalgamation of time when you've lived a certain, always been attracted to it though. When I was a Jehovah's Witness, I once wore a tie and a jacket. You're not allowed to wear trousers to the meetings. You could wear trousers on your day off, but never to the meetings and never out knocking on doors. It would be a scandal if you wore trousers, even like you just can't, you just couldn't. But once I wore a tie with a jacket and an elder said you can't do that in androgyny. So it's completely not allowed. So specifically androgyny wasn't allowed. Yes. Any kind of drag, obviously it would be more there would be more of a high alert if a man was in drag than a woman because of the way society operates and cultural norms. But the actual wearing of a tie. And then there was a part at the assembly that I had to do. So the assembly is like a big meeting where lots of congregations meet and I had to do a part on the stage. Women are not allowed to preach, but we could be talked to, so you could either do little plays or be interviewed. And so that's no wonder I'm a podcaster. And I was interviewed about it and I was a whole part about how women need to be in femme clothes and men need to be in masculine clothes. And I was in that part very proud to say. So yeah, so we finally, when our black tie, or if I wear trousers at a tie, it feels very sexy and very rebellious. Yeah, that makes sense. And I think the sort of gay male version of that is you, well, like this, what'd you call this plaid? Like that's something that people play with because it's considered hyper masculine cowboy and all of that and you sort of you take those codes and play with them because some of them match you some of them don't and you I love that bit of queerness that you're sort of privy to all of that and what clothes say about you and how you can mess with it. So is this a brokeback study that you've this is it? But then your boxed into like, it's broke back. But actually all that's what people wet men wear lots of plaid. But it is to do with hyper masculinity and all that stuff, isn't it? It's to do with the mobile man. Was he wearing plaid? Someone was. That in that genre, certainly. What clothes are you genuinely drawn to though, Chris? Or do you not know? Is there not a genuine drawn to because it's so mixed up with the iconography of queerness for you? The pandemic was awful for everybody, but it did bring lounge wear back. And if I remember having a conversation with my mom when I was like four and I was standing at the bottom of the stairs and I used to sing memories from cats every morning. And I would wear a tracksuit and I remember having conversation with my mom and my sister and I said, I will never not wear a track suit ever. And they were like, Christopher, that's not going to work. You will want to wear other things. It's like, no, I want to attract it forever. And what happened is that basically I'm sort of always secretly trying to wear a tracksuit in some way. Like what jeans so uncomfortable. I love that you're wearing that you were singing cats every morning. I just absolutely love that. See, every morning you'd get up and sing memories from cats in a track set. Yeah. And macavity. And was it was the track suit, a sort of homage to cats because they were in that kind of slinky lunch way of dancer clothes? No, it was just, I just liked wearing this navy blue tracksuit and I couldn't understand why other people wanted to wear other things and it was comfortable. I wanted to be comfortable. So actually then that's another I'm an LGBTQ+ person, but because I never I've never felt fashionable. You know what I mean? I've never really got it and actually queer people are meant to be very fashion.

"So radio was how people entertain themselves and were informed. While there were many ways to spread propaganda, radio was uniquely suited to do so. It required very little investment. It was very low risk compared to dropping leaflets, and it could reach an enormous number of people. It was for this reason that both sides during the war used radio to try to reach their opponents. The British would broadcast BBC shows in German, and the Americans created their own radio shows in German and Japanese, which were intended for an enemy audience. German born actress and singer, Marlene Dietrich recorded radio broadcasts in German for the American office of strategic services, which were used in Europe. So it came as no surprise about the Germans and the Japanese did the same thing. In the Pacific and in Asia was common for the Japanese government to produce English language radio programming using female hosts for their show. These programs would be broadcast out of cities like Manila Shanghai and Tokyo, which were occupied by the Japanese. They would play popular American music, interspersed with heavily slanted news updates, which were intended to demoralize American troops. American soldiers did in fact listen to these broadcasts because there wasn't much else to listen to. In Asia, the hosts of these programs became known as Tokyo rose. It should be noted that there was no one person who was Tokyo rose. It was a generic name given to any female host who worked for the Japanese. In fact, none of the hosts ever called themselves Tokyo rose. It was a name used by the soldiers. Tokyo rose served as a focal point for American anger in the Pacific because it was an actual person who spoke their language. For the most part, their enemy was a distant faceless opponent with whom they couldn't communicate. Tokyo rose, however, was someone who talked directly to them. She would tell the Americans of their defeats. Ignoring Japanese defeats, of course, and try to sow doubt about their chances of victory and the justness of their cause..

'cause a stage would collapse. Beat or free can't say we get the first glimmering of what is now a fact of life. Which is the rock and roll show attracts people way beyond the rock and roll audience. Which if you look in the space as late sixties was not the case. People wednesday led zeppelin. Were all harry. People wearing great cats acute up will not get tickets starting in nineteen seventy two. You start to get wider range of people starting to get a bit of central ironic distance on the idea of being a rock star and people start to dress.

He's wearing aviator shades and he's leaning on a sign that says patients please a drug free. America comes first. He was playing to people's idea of what he expected him to be. In at all so you could say. They didn't write many spectacular songs. After nine hundred seventy two. But he hasn't held them back because the legacy while they did early on is what keeps on going and that lasted so many acts. So you mentioned earlier.

The most of them are women nowadays. It's switch completely.

Behave in the way that we expected. Rugs hus- behave. You've got a chapter on stevie nicks from fleetwood. Mac what do you think her significance as a rockstar by stevie nicks because my theory is the stevie nicks is the person who makes fleetwood mac interesting. If you take stevie nicks fleetwood. Mac the doobie brothers. She's the mystical thing and she was the business people sat down. I wonder was nick's is stevie nicks has to props. She has ten bahrain which is taped up.

God told me about about that concert. And why he strikes you as such an important rockstar. Well the council musically. It was just absolutely a standing. I'd never heard that kind of music played live. They were very loud. He was immensely charismatic. Figure they played a low to songs that you either knew l. Felt new them the first time you heard them. Because that's one of the things that often gets forgotten about. Bob nali is. He could rent a catchy choon and that nothing he ever did was boring. Been w took them seriously as we say it was with. Bob molly sounds a change. And he did all kinds of things like him. he spent lots of money on the packaging. Spend lots of money in the photography so everything was going in his favor but boy was astoundingly.

"He decided would be his sole director for the remainder of his career. Not a bad endorsement. For kramer and for tracy. It was a guarantee of roles that would add to his carved in stone image as these solid decent liberal minded american. His judge dan hayward in judgment at nuremberg was perhaps the apotheosis of that image judgment at nuremberg delivered on a frequent expectation. Spencer tracy's film roles powerful along speeches frequently captured in single takes that usually state the film's themes and ideas as political or intellectual arguments. One such early example is the radio harangue his character. A presidential candidate gives at the end of state of the union in nineteen forty. Eight as the clarence darrow. Inspired character in stanley kramer's inherit the wind. Tracy gives a single take jury summation that lasts ten minutes. Well he beats his own record in judgment at nuremberg with a courtroom speech that lasts nearly fourteen minutes on the day. That tracy gave his fourteen minutes summation speech. The set at universal pictures was packed to the rafters with celebrities studio executives. Kramer shot this scene in a single take. Not because he thought breaking it up would necessarily lessen the impact of the words but because he knew he would get the maximum emotional payoff out of tracy without having to start and stop to be sure he had the coverage he needed without scheduling. Re-shoot kramer had the speech filmed with two cameras simultaneously from two different angles. Despite being ill with a kidney ailment and other problems exacerbated by his long standing alcoholism tracy agreed to go to germany for exterior location shooting and even worked hard when he returned to the studio set in hollywood katherine hepburn was reportedly with him throughout the production. Keeping an eye on him and caring for him tracy's biggest fear was that he would not be able to remember his lines.

"Just a lot of community on set and was less of it this year because we couldn't hang out and like you know you lose a lot of communication buchanan people's like only only there is but I don't know it was a total gift to be part of a community again. And i think there were certainly you know nothing but isolation last year so i just i don't i don't know so being back on set was great and it was way better than season one for me like i think season what was just like you know very difficult in that like yeah. I mean it's hard to say 'cause like my dream gig jury right and it was. It was an amazing experience. But like i think. I really like i never been on before. I never had like you know. Everything was brand new. So this is. I just felt like okay now. I kind of have an idea of what i'm doing. I'll never say. I know what. I'm doing danny just but I don't know. And i really feel if i wasn't embedded in. Have that gift to go back to work and be around. This group of folks that really come together and collaborate to create our. I'd still be on my couch. Like i wouldn't have left my house yet so i i know i feel. I feel very fortunate. So that's how it was for me. I think a really scary to be out in the world and we had to shut down. Thirty seven of us went into quarantine. But nobody from that. Ill like so you know like i just showed that we were doing stuff right. I don't know if that was my experience soleil. Oh i was just i just so thankful to to be able to feel like you said had be a kind of alive and working. I was so thankful for this opportunity. And thankful that We have smart people like lillian ads at the wheel that they made sure that our health was their priority and took it very seriously but man. It was a joy it was a joy to shoot the season I mean an. And listen i get the easy part. 'cause i'm just abbey's best friend in the show. So it's it's a joy right for me but Yes a dream job. I have been i have developed this like fervent. Wish in my mind. Which is that for every new season of the show. There's a different lake weirdly memorable recurring. Snl like scott that you deal with that you grapple with and the one that i was hoping for season two is remember when chris catan mango in the nineties. I do i. I was i was just like fantasy. Apparently by the way he's claimed in interviews that he base that character on marlene dietrich's character in the blue angel. Which if true makes that. The worst. Marlene dietrich impression i've ever seen in my life. You know what now. I actually don't feel so bad about my the worst less. It's it's not that mangoes not like an interesting character to to grapple with. It's just like i disagree getting marlene dietrich from this and getting a lot But yeah that would that would just be. My hope is like different moments when this long running nose sort of remembers something about like gay or trans people. And then just you guys kidnap chris catan for season ticket under advisement. Consider kidnapping think you thank you very much. This feels like an indicator that maybe we should go into our last question. i like. do you have any other characters. I mostly just afraid that. I was telling you to commit a felony. Worry it would i. You do have to kidnap him. I'm sorry that you can't just run into him. It does have to be a crime. Van and We'll make them danny. If that's what you want then we will make that happen am one fifth of your audience. I have that's true. But also i got to say we don't know beginning season. Three insta- less incident. The writer serve so like you. Can you can take her. Empty promises i will. I will take us into our last question. Okay it is intense and long. I wanna make we give it some of the intensity that i think it deserves i. I love this letter writer. I think this letter writer is doing altogether too much and needs to scale a lot back. But i i feel very fond of this type of. I'm taking someone else's life personally. The subject is thirty. One single without babies. And ready to scream. I can't sort out. Why i'm so angry at my pregnant best friend. These days we met in college and we're now in our early thirties. Her life plan always involves being married with kids by twenty seven. Her parents married relatively young and held it up as an ideal. She's just fallen pregnant at thirty one and she's engaged. I know that it means a lot to her now. But instead of being upfront and excited an honest everything is couched in humble brags or at least that's what it seems like. She would love to go to the movies but she's just so tired now. She would love to eat the food we have prepared but she just has to look it up. I being pregnant is such a chore. everything is this cute self deprecating joke. But it's not a joke. It's fine that it means a lot to her. She's being pedantic so so painful for me. Because i've never had a partner and thirty one single and unlikely to have kids or anything at this point when she talked about getting engaged. She said it's just the next step because they had been together seven years. I don't have seven years to suss out rather a partners. The right fit. It's a grim view of heterosexuality that after seven years. You just might as well be married and have kids. So why do herself deprecating jokes. Drive me up the wall. I don't know if. I want kids but it still hurts so much to address it if not how do we make the pain go away. I've always known. I wasn't going to have a conventional life but as i entered my thirties and more my friends settle and go through these conventional life steps of engagement and kids. I start to feel so unattractive so left out and so alone. It's not my path to hit these life milestones but it still really painful not to hit them. wow did you have a sense. Celeste reading this letter like did you feel like this letter writer would have more productive results having some of this conversation with her friend. Is it more. You think internal work. How how much of this do you think needs to be filtered out. How much do you think could be shared. You know like. I said maybe in the last one. You can't change another person but but you can bet you have every right to voice how you're feeling especially if if you're hurting but it is also to make sure that you know i 'cause i don't wanna speak for either party to make sure that she's relieved the reason why you might be hurting because to me it just it. This is the place that she's in she's in a first pregnancy and and a lot of unknowns are gonna come and it's kinda like hey you know that's her patch right now but everything. This is going to continue through life. We bought a house where having her first grandkid..

"Got a hunting, ethereal. You fall in love with this woman. I like this thing is I kind of started is caving in. They don't all sign that. No, no kind of a breakthrough it right and the sugar cubes. That's how I first heard about her. But we'll hang out backstage with Arianna 81, so I know so. Anyway. So so Byork was invited to the Oscars because she was nominated for best original song. For the song called I've Seen it all, and it was from Dancer in the dark that whatever that movie was, she's that's a tough one to watch. Is that with Nicole Kidman or somebody that was kind of a foreign, you know, there was probably some mainstream. Yeah, but I remember that I never saw the movie or whatever people said It was a really hard movie to see and He ended up Catherine Deneuve, isn't it? That's right. And she ended up that night. I believe she loses to Bob Dylan. Okay, Okay. But that's why she was invited to, um God, the Oscars, and so she you know, she swoops in. She's got this giant bird drape your under neck and I mean immediately. People just were losing their mind. And it was by this Macedonian designer margin. Pajot Ski who ruffled the feathers. One critic called it one of the dumbest things I've ever seen. Joan Rivers at the Times concluded that miss her that BYORK need to be put into an asylum that was on fashion. Police and the ensemble inspired endless parodies and earned a spot on nearly every single list of the worst Oscar gowns. But 20 years later. Her flight advance. E no longer looks like a faux pas but a fashion masterpiece. I really should have had a Holly posted because Of how it was styled. But you get the pictures. Wow! And and it was inspired by carousel animals. This is what the designer said, and the show it it had this shear body suit soon. With sequins and peacock feathers. And then the piece de resistance, If you will, is the tool to to, you know, with the feathered thing going around, and when this was shown on the runway, the model Alex wack. War it and she's very tall black. Maybe I can't remember where she's from the very does. I think her hair was always like closely cropped the model and people went crazy when this dress was in fashion week. Okay, that you know in the fall. So the morning of the Oscars, New York was so excited to where her swan dress she loved the whole story behind that, you know, the caress allow, and she loved. But anyway, she made her people go out. To look for ostrich eggs that she could lay periodically on the red Perfect. And Bronwyn Cosgrove, fashion journalist and author of made for Each other Fashion Academy, said she was in London Fashion Week when the swan dress was this talking point. It closed the show. Alex, who? AC Worid. So the dress had a life of its own before Byork even came along right? And then Valerie Steele, who's the director and chief curator at the museum, at F I t. In New York, she said. You have a very long history of women and Swan's going back to Swan Lake. In the late 19th century dancer Anna Pavlova is the dying swan exerted a major impact on fashion designers and you look at some of the dresses that emulate, you know. Oh, yeah, the holiday and some of the one Children and then Bronwyn, this fashion journalist, she said New York is selected a number of Pajot skis outfits. And wore them while promoting dancer in the dark, large von Tree years very depressing movie about death, they think, and I think New York was also in the movie. He wasn't he was, Yes. So she actually turned a bed con wearing one of those dresses, and it was even zanier than the swan dress, And it was inspired by old Hollywood Specifically when Marlene Dietrich dressed up is the Greek Greek myth leader and the Swan for a 19 thirties. Costume party and New York ends up winning. You know the best actress in con in this this outfit, and it was like a poofy pink organza pleaded lantern dress. But they did. The design team had no idea that the swan dress was even in her future. So I'm looking at that other does it look like it looks like paper lantern. It looked like a paper land. Yeah, And that wasn't so And then this other guy who does embroidery for the designer, he said, Listen, this margin was very big in London in 2001. He She was working on her Vespertine album, and that album Anyone who follows Byork and she's very thematic, right, right? I mean, you know a little bit about her these dramatic theatrical That she was doing this very atmospheric. Album when she saw my swan dress. She loved it because the swan is the like a winter album, and she was feeling that mood and The woman at the time, who was senior VP of publicity and elector record said I remember your coming into my office with the dress. I loved it. What? I love it for anyone else. No, But Byork, I thought, yes. I can't imagine her wearing any kind of typical designer. This is perfect, so we were all for it. And then the fashion journalists, where referenced earlier said so many designers had been reaching out to be York. Because of this movie and getting nominated. They wanted to dress her for the Oscars to staying at the Chateau Marmont, and a lot of designers were just sending her dresses that whole week. This is 2001. And so it's we're not before this is, Yeah..

"Are tough pill to swallow particularly as there are so few spaces dedicated to this community and losing them means losing their history. Here's what you told us about your favourite lesbian bars. Hey this is kate of iowa city. I'm so sad that my schaefer lesbian bart on the west coast all of them. Maude and amelia's in san francisco primary domain the nine two seven in portland oregon and the east lake east and seattle. Have all closed. My name is emily. I'm calling from los angeles. The first and last time i ever went to the iconic lexington club in san francisco was there last weekend open. It was so heart wrenching to hear the owners come up and say thank you for your support to see the people who've been going there for decades. Hey this is amber hall senior producer at the takeaway. I actually met the woman who i would later. Marry at gingers in brooklyn. These are very special. Incredible places. I really hate to see so many close their doors thanks to amber and all our listeners who reached out on this this is also near and dear to my heart. I went to my first lesbian bar. In the late seventies a place with no windows on portland's skid row. I wasn't yet twenty one. And even though i'd been out of the closet for a year or two at that point i didn't know what was behind that window is store. It turned out to be a fantastic scene. Crossing generations and various representations of gender non including working class butch lesbians who i wouldn't ever seen let alone meet otherwise i'm joined now by joe mcdaniel co founder of as you are bar to discuss what the continued closure of lesbian bars means for queer women and the cultural impact of these institutions. Thanks for joining me. Joe thanks for having me nancy so you started. Bartending in dc in two thousand five at lgbtq i- bars and helped open dc's only standing lesbian bar league of her own. How is the scene changed in that time. While it's funny how you mentioned the windowless bars In portland skid row although dupont circle is far from a sketchy neighborhood the first bar i worked in two thousand five had zero Notable effects on the outside it was a completely blank. Space sort of a small sign above the door and inside was enormous like warehouse sized dance floor and everything was painted black and everything had mirrors and it was nothing you would expect from the outside In that was you know. Thirteen years later i helped to open a league of her own. Which you know has rainbows. All over the france and windows and this Quite visible from the street quite clear The the community serve switch. We didn't really even in the early. Two thousands didn't have the freedom to do yet. Now talk about the closings. This is this is really been going on before the pandemic hit so tell us you know what are some of the pressures on these businesses and and and why have there been so many closings while washington. Dc lost our beloved phase. One in two thousand fifteen after forty one years Phase one was the longest running lesbian bar in the states. At the time. And listening to the callers talk about their places that have closed it was heart wrenching. There are people in their washington's who still talk about the times had at phase. I think the pressures are Are so many. And i think one of the main things that sort of get swept under the is pay inequity and job security for queer people. you know women and queer people and non binary gender non conforming struggle to make less cents on the dollar have less leisure money To be spending on luxury items like going out So just changes The need of that community and then it changes by proxy. How the proprietor can run their business And so that's a huge pressure and in dc we face a lot of gentrification because we're a small small in terms of square footage or square miles rather and so as soon as a neighborhood gentrified or gets you know cleaned up as they say then it becomes harder to run a business there. Can an argument be made that the the need for lesbian bars has decreased as acceptance generally has increased. I love that question Because i think it's It's an interesting to how the world has shifted and sure we can go to a chain restaurant and potentially hold our girlfriend's hand and it be somewhat safe but you never know what you're walking into an and marginalized communities that doesn't shift you are marginalized regardless of how how much acceptance we are not there yet and there's something incredibly sacred about walking into a space and knowing that while you don't know what's behind that door you know that it's your people in there and you know that there's a a commonality that you can't find just anywhere and there's that safety helps you grow and become the human. You're going to be when you know you have it so as somebody who you know started in my early twenties and now in my late thirties and have watched the bar scene shift from behind the bar. I can tell you that there are twenty two year olds to day. Who are still aching so. I don't think we're aging out there still aching for that sense of community that we can only get in spaces that are designed for four our community right so you and your co founder are working to open as you are bar in washington dc. So tell us about that project and what you're trying to do with it. Yeah i think Gay bars in generally have a fairly cookie cutter approach. And we're looking to break that mold rich pike and are looking to be more inclusive To not be a lesbian bar but to be able to use more umbrella term like queer to really make sure we're including trans folks and nonbinary folks and then we're looking to sort of bridge some of the age gap. Dc has a huge higher education component. And if you're not twenty one there's really no place for you yet and we want to change that. Are there different dynamics in place for lgbtq bars as a whole i mean. Their numbers are declining as well. But are there. Is there anything different going on between lesbian bars. And the more general queer bars in general. Yeah i think that the The gay men Community really a built. Its nightlife or builds its social component around where people go whereas for what i have found in the community of clear women and non binary people and trans folks is that we are going to go where the people are so. It's not so much about what space we go to but who were occupying with And so that's just seems to be like almost inherently a a difference between the communities in that regard And i think that as we as a community have more quality dwindling numbers in gay men bars has shifted. And i think that's a generational thing you know. There was a bit of a dip in the eighties when obviously when the aids epidemic ran rampant through our community. And i think it's almost like an opposite effect happened that once are we started getting more legal rights. Almost our community started started settling down and and going out a little bit less or or or needing that community as our visibility increased a little less. Well there's also the advent of online dating which or you know online hookups. Which has been you know. That's a huge shift in how you meet people because of course it doesn't need to be said when they're when that didn't exist. You almost had to go to the bars to find people to meet there. There was no option. Now right so you know. Obviously the pandemic has been brutal on bars and restaurants. But do you think there might be an actual bump. Once were able to reopen. I mean it seems like if there ever was a case for pent up demand this would be one of them. Yeah it's so interesting so rate my partner and i When we founded as you are bar we provide a good amount of virtual content. We have weekly content and monthly things. And while i'm very grateful and Continuously like sort of cheer us on in that. The countdown is real. The constant asking of when a brick and mortar is coming It just it just happens. Continuously and some new we spoke about earlier in pandemic is the service. Industry has shifted a little bit because this generation didn't know how much they needed us or how much they Were gaining from having no nightlife professionals in their lives until we were not there so rachel in particular have gotten because we were both bartending up until the pandemic hit and and well into it. We got lots of messages about like literally shock and awe. I can't believe how much i miss you. All how much. I miss being in that space. Even people who are sort of like not into it or crammed in or uncomfortable was like no. I'm i'm dying to be like in a sweaty on a sweaty dance floor and we as we do too. That's like me actually missing my commute to work which is crazy so along with lesbian bars. Black owned gay bars have also seen their numbers decline. What are we collectively lose when these spaces close safety first and foremost I think were so fortunate to the pandemic for a lot of people's eyes being opened to the whites. White supremacist and capitalist structure. That we're built on It was really easy when you were sort of in the rat race of ambition to lose sight of that bigger picture and i think people so many people have less of an ability to ignore those truths anymore. And so when we when you lose your community the more intersectional the better There was this monday party. Here in dc that region. I would frequent it was held in a bar owned by a black woman and it was run by all black queer pupil and we just went into incr- you know. Add money to the pot and not take up too much space but just to help Help keep the partying going. And yeah people meet each other they network and there's there's power in that there's power in numbers and so knowing where your people are going to be on a certain given night that's That just keeps you safe through the rest of the week. It's better for your mental health. It's you know so. I just think Losing spaces particularly those owned by march nights communities anytime one person loses or has to close their doors. It's a blow to that whole community right. I think it's hard sometimes for people who've lived their whole lives as heterosexuals that to really understand the rule. That bars have played in the lives of gays and lesbians over the years of for you know for more than a century really so towards the end of last year to filmmakers started the lesbian bar project which is trying to raise money for lesbian bars to stay open. How is that going and and you know. Is it playing a role in preserving the the bar scene Well eric rosen alina street. I can't say enough. Good things about these incredibly ambitious super young humans. is very fortunate to work really closely with them. Both on the first iteration of lesbian bar project. And as well as what they have coming up and you know. I got a flirt with lee delay area on the assumes for event but that's no surprise there anyone within one hundred mile radius ever gets that but so that was really fun It's it's one of the biggest things for me that was a takeaway of that was Interacting with proprietors of the different spaces across the country sort of learning people's stories. You can feel really siloed because again misogynistic culture says that we should be competitors So we don't really like talk to and about each other. That often and i have been fortunate enough to just fall in love with these people who are also doing this work in their small and it feels so small. When you're in it just in your little bar in your little town which none of our towns are particularly small but still that's how it feels and like to actually just sit and throw ideas back and forth and tell our stories is so powerful catastrophic who owns henrietta. Hudson's is absolutely like my elder crash for a year. Now because she's you know everything you wanted. A new york broad with this like scratchy raspy smoker's cough voice and thick. New york accent is my hero And so you know it's it's an impressive thing when we know about each other and when we can hold each other up and hang on to each other i guess that is one of the silver linings in the pandemic cloud. Is that the ways that zoom has allowed people to be in touch across geographical distance. At least joe mcdaniel is the co founder of as you are bar coming soon to washington. Dc thanks so much for being with us my pleasure. Thanks for having me. I started linked. Dyke burs was lesbian. And that was the place to meet other women and was very exciting but it kept going. Because i love to dance. The first steak bar went to dietrich. I think it was called named after. Marlene dietrich and then places lake The duchess was able to to sit in the back in a corner and watch of the dynamics between women. Because i was a baby jake and what had so many questions. But was so scared to ask i moved onto crazy nannies. There being two floors was so great. I was always on the dance floor and the top. When i wasn't trying to do naughty things in the bathrooms my moved onto the club and loved it there but also henrietta hudson's which actually was super small so wasn't really my fave spot but before covid on a friday night you would see me in henrietta. 's sweating it out on the dance floor. I think the reason why dyke bars are so important and why. It's so sad that there are a dying breed is because you go you know to see dykes in be group in a clump. You know like nowhere else. Except for maybe the dyke march and that's only once a year so dyke. Marge i mean diapers bars are super important. I am a black lesbian and my age. Fifty five hi. My name is lauren. From brooklyn new york. Are you she her pronouns. And i'm thirty six years old growing up in park slope. I've always been blessed to have lesbian bars. There as far. Back as i can remember They've always been a place of empowerment for me Aside from just being a place to hang out with your friends as a place where we have community meetings and Social events outside of just drinking and like any marginalized community. It's important for people to have access to see for spaces where they know that they'll be welcomed and free to be themselves so it's important for these lesbian bars to continue to exist specifically in park slope gingers on fifth avenue. Pretty much raised me. When i was in my early twenties as to go to caddyshack on fourth avenue that's closed and then when i would go to the city i live often. Go to cubby hole in the village okay. That was fun. We appreciate you all reaching out and telling us about your favorite lesbian bars and what it meant to anytime you want to talk with us. You can just go to the takeaway dot org and click on contact us. You can record your take right from your computer or phone and you can use the old fashioned phone as well.

"Not during a scene with her finish said later, my new I was acting, but my heart didn't and my body. Certainly didn't I won't discuss it more because of the degree of intimacy involved. That was Finney the chemistry between the two is unmistakable Harris writes, and perhaps at its most powerful during the scenes when you're wondering whether Mark and Joanna should stay together at all a counter to your point about the Manzini score. He says, Don and gives their dilemma a great glossy coat from the gorgeous animated opening credits by 007 genius MAURICE binder to what may be the most melancholy romantic theme, Henry Mancini ever composed and then on its poignancy. He says undone in steady hand to for the road. Does what only a Hollywood movie can do it convince you to beautiful movie stars tooling through France and car are just like us. It's everybody's marriage. That's on trial in this film. If you've ever failed to let a fight go or said one thing too many or kept silent rather than apologize. You're likely to recognize a bit of yourself in the shards of the Wallace's the point about how they're just like us the scene that I think does that. So well is when they are forced to stay in the chichi hotel and have to kind of dodge around the fact that they can't afford to tell the restaurant. I mean, those charged for it is just a great secret. So fun so two for the road, my choice. Maybe Mark Harris's choice. If indeed he was participating in the marathon Thanos pick. I know it's not your choice though, Josh. And you know, what it's also not the choice of another guest. We have teased at last week that my daughter Sophie has been watching all of these films with me the first film finding marathon any of my children have fully participated in. And she wanted to play along and weigh in with her choice for best picture. I'm Sophie Manar in my awards for best picture goes to funny face. I was sucked in soon as the bundle of pink fabric hits the camera during the opening number it sets the tone for the whole movie fun wins ical, vibrant that. Coupled with an excellent performance from Audrey Hepburn led to experience where to quote, my dad. I couldn't wait to rewatch it as I was watching it. So there's my daughter quoting me quoting same van Haldeman? But that's fine. We'll go with it all goes round and round. Well, I knew Sophie was sharp. But this seals the deal. I mean, she she got the pick. Right. Funny faces the best picture of this marathon. I'll admit I probably enjoyed charade as much while watching it. But I think for me funny face has those musical production numbers that just are going to put it over the top. If you're comparing the two not only what I've already mentioned in these awards, but how about on how to be lovely that satirical, duet with Hepburn and Kate Thomson. I think that one really is crucial because it undercuts some of the movies fashion fascination that that they got into labout. That's great. Irene George Gershwin's. He loves and she loves I don't think we talked about this when we reviewed it at all. But this is where Hepburn an Astaire are at an. Outdoor wedding photo shoot. And they dance their way across a stream by lightly stepping onto a floating raft. I mean, here's another almost over the top Don touch could have been a pick for physio seen as well. So funny face. It's just stuffed with production numbers. Most of them quite delightful. Domine, of course, will forever be known for co directing singing in the rain. But I do think funny face has deserves a place in the top tier musicals conversation. Well, it's my runner up certainly for this marathon film. I did enjoy and has so many of those great done in moments. And touches that's our marathon. Are thanks again to Sophie to Nathaniel, of course, for all of his insights and launching all of these conversations. We hope you enjoyed this marathon whether you were following along or not and able to watch every film, we do have another marathon coming up. We don't have the date set exactly for when it will commence, but we're going to take a look at the work of Josef von Sternberg and Marlene Dietrich that collaboration. You can find.
